I'm 26weeks pregnant and have just started getting milk :-/

I had my daughter at 32weeks (hadn't had any milk come in till wayyy past her birth). Bit scared this could be a sign of preterm labour again! Don't want to ring my midwife in case this is a stupid question! Is it normal to get milk this early?

It is, yes smile Very normal!

If it reassures you, I got mine at 26 weeks with DS. He was born at t+13. I am now T+10 with my second, and started producing colostrum at 18 weeks smile

Very very normal! Relax!

Perfectly normal. In both my previous pregnancies (both of which went overdue) I was getting masses of colostrum such that my pyjama top would be soaked at night.

I have been producing small amounts since 12 weeks! Very annoying.
